An EETD Seminar on Oct. 9, 2012, by Dr. Hui Zhang, Researcher, Center for the Built Environment (CBE), University of California, Berkeley.
This presentation describes energy efficient approaches to provide comfort in offices by creating non-uniform and transient thermal environments. The presentation will describe 1) distributions and characteristics of thermoreceptors of human body, 2) comfort responses of people exposed to complex thermal environments, 3) concept of “alliesthesia”, 4) personal comfort systems developed by CBE, 5) their energy efficiency and demand response potential, and 6) the CBE advanced thermal comfort model.
